Song Of The Day

Today's Selection is...

“Grace” from All That You Can‘t Leave Behind.

I like this song more than I should. It seems so... Poetically Bono. Adam's bass is turned up to an endearingly loud volume, and I love, love Edge's slide guitar. "What once was hurt,/what once was friction,/what left a mark,/no longer stings,/because Grace makes beauty/out of ugly things..."

Grace, she takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name

Grace...
It's a name for a girl
It's also a thought that, changed the world
And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness in everything

Grace, she's got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She's got the time to talk
She travels outside of karma, karma
She travels outside... of karma

When she goes to work, you can hear the strings
Grace finds beauty in everything

Grace...
She carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips
She carries a pearl in perfect condition

What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings...
Because Grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things

Grace finds beauty in everything
Grace finds goodness in everything
